Former Motor Image driver Rifat Sungkar is taking a break from APRC rallying in 2009 – to get married!! The lucky girl is Amalia Gamyla (or perhaps Rifat is the luck one?) and according to Rifat they have only known each other for 30 days – surely love at first sight! See ‘Rifat Sungkar’ facebook for engagement photographs.
Another reason for taking a break in 2009 is that Rifat’s mother, Ria Sungkar who manages sponsorship for Rifat and brother Rizal is currently contesting the Indonesian elections.
Sungkar will still contest the Indonesian championship (he is the current champion) and is considering entering the APRC’s Asia Cup.
